Tonight’s Matchup: vs the Steelers: The Stampeders are coming off one of their biggest wins of the season, knocking off the top ranked team in the MJHL. Swan will need another full 60 minute effort on home ice tonight if they want to push their win streak to four games, and another weekend sweep.
Last Game: 4-1 win over Portage: The Stampeders had a tough opening first ten minutes Friday night at the Centennial Arena, but once they got their game going, it was lights out for Portage. The Stampeders scored one in the first, one in the second and two in the third to snap the Terriers seven game win streak, and push their own win streak to three games. Kobe Grant was again the story, stopping 37/38 shots he faced for his 14th win of the season.
